Apple Computer Inc. has won another Emmy Award, this time for the company’s video and film editing software, Final Cut Pro. Apple will be given the award for its impact on the television industry by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at the Goldenson Theatre in Hollywood.
“Final Cut Pro has democratized professional video editing by bringing the capabilities of a $50,000 editing bay to everyone for under $1,000,” said Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, in a statement. “We are honored and excited to be receiving Apple’s second Emmy Award.”
Last week the Academy of Television Arts Sciences announced the recipients of the 2002 Primetime Emmys for engineering and animation. Final Cut Pro and Apple were one of the Emmy winners for “their innovative developments in film engineering.”
This is not the first entertainment industry award Apple has collected. Last year Apple’s FireWire technology was honored by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for its impact on the television industry. In February Apple won a Technical Grammy Award for its “outstanding technical contributions to the music industry and recording field.”
